Obviously, the word "indefinitely" only means two days at MSNBC, because that's how long it took to decide putting Keith Olberman back on the air. What is also obvious is that this smells of some kind of publicity stunt. One question I had was why Olberman would do something so overtly that he knew would cause a big stir. Could it be that he and MSNBC have colluded to boost their sagging ratings by concocting this whole scheme? I wouldn't put it past them. In any case, MSNBC - also obviously - doesn't care much about instilling journalistic ethics or credibility at their network, if all you get is a two day suspension when breaking the rules. What a huge sham this is. Anyone who can't see what is the obvious motive here is either demented or is simply a fool.
